There are several methods of testing and measuring the salt levels. Our firm has developed a new test kit, “CHLOR*TEST“. Though the term used is soluble salts, primarily chloride, nitrate and sulfate, these salts are not readily water soluble. The use of CHLOR*RID greatly aids in their removal. CHLOR*RID is added to water, usually in a 1:100 dilution, and can be utilized with a high pressure wash, added to a wet abrasive blast or many other methods (See Directions). CHLOR*RID complexes with the salt ions upon contact, forms a permanent bond, and the salts move off in the spent wash water. A surface contaminated with soluble salts is termed as being contaminated with non-visible contaminants, therefore testing of some type must be performed to determine if such contamination exists. If the contaminants are not removed, it may lead to loss of adhesion, blistering and corrosion continuing beneath a coating. When surfaces are encountered which contain non-visible contaminants, CHLOR*RID is the easiest, least expensive, fastest means of removal. CHLOR*RID is all organic, non-hazardous and bio-degradable.
